Houma – On June 3, 2022, shortly before midnight, Louisiana State Police was requested by the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office to investigate a shooting incident involving one of their deputies. Detectives assigned to the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations are investigating the incident.
The initial investigation revealed at approximately 11:00 p.m., the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office received a complaint of narcotics activity occurring at a residence in the 300 block of Grace Street. As deputies arrived at the residence, 18-year-old Joshua Babin of Houma approached the door with a firearm in his hand. A deputy gave commands for Babin to drop the firearm, but he pointed the weapon towards the deputy. This resulted in a deputy discharging their service weapon and striking Babin.
